4. PLATFORM USE AND CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
You expressly acknowledge, agree, and understand that the Platform is an intermediary and has no control over the quality, safety, or legality of Tasks, and the ability of Taskers to perform Tasks to Clients’ satisfaction. Taskers are not employees of Near Tasks and Near Tasks does not supervise, direct, or control Clients or Taskers or services performed or delivered by Taskers. Near Tasks will not have any liability or obligations for any acts or omissions made by you or any Users.

Use of the Platform is at your own risk.
The term “Confidential Information” means any and all of Clients or Near Tasks’ trade secrets, confidential and proprietary information, and all other information and data of Clients or Near Tasks that is not generally known to the public or other third parties who could derive value, economic or otherwise, from its use or disclosure.

7. FEES AND PAYMENTS BY CLIENTS
Tasks contracted through the Platform may be subject to a fee payable to NEAR Tasks (the “Fee”). Fees shall be paid by Client and shall be due upon submitting a Task Set through the Platform. The Fee is refundable in the event that: (i) Client is dissatisfied with the quality output of the Task Set and submits a request for review within 30 days of completion of the Task Set. In all cases, Near Tasks, in its sole discretion, determines whether or not Client is eligible for a refund of the Fee.
8. WORK PRODUCT AND WORK FOR HIRE OF TASKERS
Tasker will perform all services in relation to the Tasks in a professional manner and deliver any agreed upon tangible or intangible results or deliverables, including, but not limited to, configurations, computer programs, software, applications, or other information, and any intellectual property developed in connection therewith (“Work Product”). Where applicable, Work Product must be submitted in open source format.
Any Work Product performed by Tasker is a “work made for hire” for the benefit of the Client. Tasker’s Work Product, including without limitation all patent rights, copyright rights, mask work rights, moral rights, rights of publicity, trademark, trade dress and service mark rights, goodwill, trade secret rights and other intellectual property rights as may now exist or hereafter come into existence, and all applications therefore and registrations, renewals and extensions thereof, under the laws of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction (“Intellectual Property Rights”) in the Work Product, will be the sole and exclusive property of Client, and Client will be deemed to be the author thereof. If Tasker has any intellectual property rights to the Work Product that are not owned by Client upon Tasker’s receipt of payment, Tasker automatically and irrevocably assigns to Client all right, title and interest worldwide in and to such intellectual property rights. Except as set forth above, Tasker retains no rights to use, and will not challenge the validity of Client’s ownership in such intellectual property rights. Tasker hereby waives any moral rights, rights of paternity, integrity, disclosure and withdrawal or inalienable rights under applicable law in and to the Work Product.
Tasker agrees that it will not incorporate into Work Product or otherwise supply Client any deliverable for which the use or distribution of the code will create (or purport to create) obligations for Client to grant any rights or immunities under Client’s intellectual property to any third-party, including without limitation any obligation that the Work Product or Client software combined with, derived from, or distributed with such Work Product (i) be disclosed or distributed in source code form, (ii) be licensed for the purpose of making derivative works, or (iii) be redistributable at no charge.
9. TASKERS AS INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS
Taskers perform Tasks in their personal capacity and as an independent contractor and not as an employee of Client or Near Tasks. As a Tasker, you agree that: (i) you are responsible for and will comply with all applicable laws, related tax liabilities, and registration requirements, including those applicable to independent contractors and maximum working hours regulations; (ii) these Terms do not create an association, joint venture, partnership, franchise, or employer/employee relationship between you and Client, or you and Near Tasks; (iii) you will not represent yourself as an employee or agent of either Client or Near Tasks; (iv) you will not be entitled to any of the benefits that Client or Near Tasks may make available to its employees, such as vacation pay, sick leave, and benefits, including group health insurance or retirement benefits; and (v) you are not eligible to recover worker’s compensation benefits in the event of injury. As an independent contractor, Tasker is free at all times to provide services to persons or businesses other than Client, including any competitor of Client. Tasker does not have authority to enter into written or oral (whether implied or express) contracts on behalf of Client or Near Tasks. As a Client, you will not engage a Tasker in a way that may jeopardize Tasker’s status as an independent contractor performing Tasks for you. Clients may not require any exclusive relationship.
10. SERVICE CONTRACTS
As used in these Terms of Service, a “Service Contract” means, as applicable, contractual provisions created by Client that govern services performed through the Platform, which typically includes a description of the Task, the amount and type of currency used for compensation, fees, and other relevant details. The formation of a Service Contract will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between Near Tasks and Client or Near Tasks and Tasker. You acknowledge and agree that a legally binding contract is formed when a Service Contract is formed, which also includes the relevant terms set forth in these Terms of Service, which do not expand upon or restrict Near Tasks’ rights under these Terms of Service.
In order to use the Platform, Taskers must provide their NEAR wallet addresses. For Taskers, the Platform operates with NEAR tokens (“NEAR”). Payment to Taskers in NEAR will occur upon submission and review of completion of Tasks. Acceptance of a Tasker’s Work Product is at the sole discretion of NEAR Tasks. Taskers agree to be paid for their services in NEAR Tokens. Tasker, and not Near Tasks, shall assume all risks associated with receiving NEAR Tokens as payment, including but not limited to:
Cryptocurrencies or crypto tokens like the NEAR token, are subject to volatility and fluctuations in cryptocurrency markets, which could result in the value of the NEAR Token increasing or decreasing.
Regulatory uncertainty, changes or actions may also have a negative impact on the value of crypto tokens and may result in a crypto token having little or even no value.
NEAR tokens are subject to the risks associated with the NEAR Platform, which may not be fully developed or may not achieve the expected level of adoption or success.
The laws, regulations and directives governing distributed ledger technologies, cryptographic tokens such as the tokens and the Organization Platform are uncertain, and regulations or policies may materially adversely affect the Organization Platform and as a result, the value of the NEAR token.
The tax treatment for crypto tokens is complex and there may be adverse tax consequences upon certain future events. Tasker is responsible for seeking advice and complying with all applicable tax laws. Near Tasks is not responsible for any tax liability arising out, or in connection to, payment of services provided herein.

21. NOTICE AND PROCEDURE FOR MAKING COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS
If you believe that your copyright or the copyright of a person on whose behalf you are authorized to act has been infringed, please reach out to email@example.com.
22. BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER
The parties shall use their best efforts to engage directly to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations which shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration.
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of 30 days from the time informal dispute resolution under the initial dispute resolution provision noted above begins, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as a sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. The informal dispute resolution will commence upon written notice. Your address for such notices is the one associated with your account, with an email copy to the email address you provided to Near Tasks. Near Tasks’s address for such notice is:
Near Tasks Inc.
2810 N Church St
IN EXCHANGE FOR THE BENEFITS OF A SPEEDY, ECONOMICAL, AND IMPARTIAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEDURE OF ARBITRATION, YOU AND NEAR TASKS MUTUALLY AGREE TO WAIVE YOUR RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO RESOLUTION OF ALL DISPUTES OR CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS ARBITRATION SECTiON IN A COURT OF LAW BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND AGREE TO RESOLVE ANY DISPUTES BY BINDING ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AS SET FORTH HEREIN.
Arbitration between the parties is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) and this section survives the termination of these Terms of Service.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and Near Tasks agree to arbitrate any and all disputes and claims relating to, arising from or regarding your use of the Platform, your relationship with Near Tasks, Tasks, or these Terms of Service (including all previous versions), including disputes and claims by and against Near Tasks and its affiliates.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, this includes, but is not limited to, claims related to payments, any city, county, state or federal wage and hour law, compensation, meal or rest breaks, expense reimbursement, wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, fraud, defamation, trade secrets, unfair competition, personal injury, property damage or loss, emotional distress, any promotions or offers made by Near Tasks; breach of any express or implied contract or breach of any express or implied covenant; claims arising under federal or state consumer protection laws; claims arising under antitrust laws; claims arising under the Telephone consumer Protection Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act; claims arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Civil Rights Act, Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Older Workers Benefit Protection Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Employee Retirement Income Security Act, and state or local statutes, if any, addressing the same or similar subject matters; and all other federal, state or local statutory and common law claims.
If there is a dispute about the arbitrability of any claim, you and Near Tasks agree that this threshold dispute shall be resolved by the arbitrator.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND NEAR TASKS ARE WAITING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT OR HAVE A JURY TRIAL FOR ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS.
The parties agree that any arbitration or other permitted action shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND NEAR TASKS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its Intellectual Property Rights excluding privacy or publicity rights. Either party may seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
You release Near Tasks, its affiliates, and its respective officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and employees from claims, demands, and damages (actual or consequential) of every kind and nature, known or unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any dispute you have with another User, whether at law or in equity.
24. GENERAL INFORMATION
These Terms of Service (and any additional terms, rules and conditions of participation that Near Tasks may post on the Platform) constitute the entire agreement between you and Near Tasks with respect to the Platform and supersedes any prior agreements, oral or written, between you and Near Tasks. In the event of a conflict between these Terms of Service and any additional terms, rules and conditions of participation, the latter will prevail over the Terms of Service.
The failure of Near Tasks to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms of Service is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the arbitrator or court should give effect to the intent of the parties as reflected in the provision, and other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to the use of the Platform or the Terms of Service must be filed within one (1) year after the date the claim or cause of action arose.
